RATINGS

91The Wine Advocate

...beautifully deep, fine and aromatic on the nose...scented of very fine slate notes and crystalline purity. On the palate, the wine is lush, refined and salty-elegant...beautifully balanced and charmingly juicy Escheburg with crunchy slate flavors and lots of salinity on the finish.

91Wine Spectator

Features flavors of elderflower and orange blossom, with quince and coriander notes at the core. Softer in profile, making this approachable and delightful now. Wet stone minerality glides through the finish.

90Vinous / IWC

Apple and quince are refreshingly and invigoratingly laced with zesty, juicy grapefruit and white curran... Fruit seed piquancy helps sustain the finish but is nicely balanced by primary juiciness and salinity, and an appropriate grounding of wet stone comes through loud and clear.

REGION

Germany, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer is Germany’s most prestigious wine region and it is comprised of the vineyards surrounding the Mosel River and its tributaries, the Saar and Ruwer. This region is the northernmost of Germany’s primary viticultural areas, located on the western edge of Germany just above the northeast corner of France. Internationally Mosel Rieslings are considered among the finest white wines in the world. In Germany and elsewhere, the region’s name is often shortened simply to Mosel, and in fact since 2007 Mosel has been the formal name of the region for viticultural purposes. The references to Saar and Ruwer were dropped for ease of marketing. The distinctively crisp, mineral tasting, acidic Rieslings produced in Mosel are attributed partly to the region’s slate soils and extremely vertiginous vineyards. Many vineyards are on 60 to 80 percent cent inclines along the three rivers. Riesling grapes represent more than half of all the grapes grown in Mosel, followed by Muller-Thurgau, a white wine grape related to Riesling, and Elbling, an indigenous white wine grape often used for sparkling wines.

TYPE

White Wine, Riesling

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
